April Showers bring the Flowers

First I stamped the tulips on white text vellum paper then smooched in plum and green ink from the ink pad into the glass mat. Once dry I used stencil brush and same colors of ink pad to intensive the colors. Once dry I ran through ef in linen look then trimmed to fit inside the dry embossed line and stitched border on the lime green base cs. The green cs got clouds added by tearing a paper towel then adding gray ink with a small stencil brush. Sentiment tags were cut on the Silhouette, one in white cs and the other in vellum, The words were white cs also cut on the Silhouette that got heat embossed in black. Dotted strip is from stash.

  1. Love how the flowers turned out by smooshing them in the ink, such a pretty color of purple! Also the heat embossed words look great, the shine and dimension really makes them pop! Thank you for joining us at Can You Handle the Pressure!

  2. Love the look of the smooshed ink to “fill in” your image. The extra ink you added really accents the blooms and leaves without losing the effect of the smooshing. Love the subtle embossed texture as well.

  6. Bonnie, your card is a work of art, I love your attention to detail and soft artistic approach. The subtle sky background is gorgeous, and what a great idea to smoosh the color of the flowers. I’m so glad you joined us at Color Hues, you’ve used the colors beautifully!
